Grimsby's Havelock Academy hosts sports competitions for local primary pupils

Grimsby’s Havelock Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, has been welcoming primary school children from across the local area to take part in a number of sporting events throughout the academic year.


In association with the North East Lincolnshire School Sport Partnership, an initiative that encourages schools to work and compete in sport together, the secondary school has hosted a wide range of sporting events to motivate and inspire young people across the county to take part in competitive school sport.


Since September last year, Havelock Academy has invited primary pupils to take part in a number of sporting events including dodgeball, rowing, cross country and sports hall athletics. 


Throughout the events, participants have benefitted from the use of Havelock Academy’s impressive sporting facilities, including a 25m swimming pool, extensive sports fields and indoor gymnasiums.


Craig Suddaby, Assistant Principal at Havelock Academy, said: “Not only have these events inspired local pupils to aim high and be the best they can be, they have also helped to bring members of the local community together.


“We are looking forward to welcoming many more local primary pupils to our sporting events this year, where they will benefit from the incredible sporting opportunities that we offer as part of the David Ross Education Trust’s pioneering enrichment programme.”
